The Crystal Cabin Award Association — the non-profit organisation that oversees the industry award for innovation in the aircraft cabin — has announced that Ralf Gust, Managing Director of Hamburg Aviation, has assumed the role of President of the Association. He succeeds Lukas Kaestner.
“I am very pleased to take on the role of President of the Crystal Cabin Award Association, especially given the long and successful history of the Award and our determination at Hamburg Aviation to further develop the Award to ensure its long-term success as the industry transitions to a decarbonized future,” says Ralf Gust.
“I would also like to thank the outgoing Association President, Lukas Kaestner, for his many years of dedicated work for the Award and its community. We want to build on the highly successful 2023 edition and drive forward innovations such as the new, sustainably produced trophy. We have exciting plans for the Award in 2024 and beyond and look forward to welcoming the judges, entrants, sponsors and media to the awards ceremony on 28 May 2024, which will be once again held in Hamburg during the Aircraft Interiors Expo at the prestigious Chambers of Commerce venue.”
